#153 Considering Curiosity |
Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe

Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe's figuration is built upon a palette where color becomes its own language of transformation, be it social, political or personal. His are images of empowerment and redemption, sophistication and humility, curiosity and quietude. Each figure becomes a symbol of the reclamation of cultural dignity, embracing the idea of origin and personal narrative as it relates to gender and race dynamics.

#152 Considering Art Is . . . | Lorraine O'Grady

In her landmark performance Art Is . . . Lorraine O’Grady entered her own float in the September 1983 African-American Day Parade, riding up Harlem’s Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard (Seventh Avenue) with fifteen collaborators dressed in white.

Displayed on top of the float was an enormous, ornate gilded frame, while the words “Art Is…” were emblazoned on the float’s decorative skirt. At various points along the route, O’Grady and her collaborators jumped off the float and held up empty, gilded picture frames, inviting people to pose in them. The joyful responses turned parade onlookers into participants, affirmed the readiness of Harlem’s residents to see themselves as works of art, and created a record of the people and places of Harlem some thirty years ago.
